Third Joint Workshop on Multi-Phase Flows

Simulation, Experiment and Application


31 May - 3 June 2005
Dresden, Germany

The conference will be organised again by Forschungszentrum Rossendorf and ANSYS Germany (CFX). The workshop is supported by the Alliance for Competence in Nuclear Technology Germany.


Multiphase flows are of great interest to a lange variety of industries. The power generation, nuclear reactor technology, food production, chemical process, aerospace and automotive industries are all driving forces in this complex field.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together experimental and numerical practitioners, and to foster discussion and exchange of knowledge.

Experts from both areas are called upon to present their research and application results to a receptive worldwide audience. Topics of interest include:

  • Phase interaction models
  • Turbulence models for multiphase flows
  • CFD applied to multiphase flow problems
  • Measurement methods for multiphase flows
  • Accuracy and resolution considerations for experimental and CFD investigations
  • Practical application of CFD methods to multi-phase flow problems
  • Comparison between different numerical and experimental approaches

Papers are welcome either as full text or as presentation slides. The participants will receive the full proceedings an a CD-ROM. The proceedings will also be published an the web site of the FZ Rossendorf and as a report.

Keynote lectures:

M. Ishii: "Experimental and Theoretical Characterisation of Interfacial Structure in Two-Phase Flow"
M. Lopez de Bertodano: "Turbulence and the Two-Fluid Model: Advances in the Fast Decade"
M. Sommerfeld: "Detailed Modelling of Elementary Processes in Bubbly Flows an the Basis of the Lagrangian Approach

Short Course

The short course is designed to provide knowledge on the use of numerical and experimental methods for multiphase flows. The participants will receive an overview of the possibilities and limits of modern experimental methods and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Valuable information on the applicability of CFD for your tasks will be provided.
The short course will address the interests of engineers, chemists, physicists and technicians active in research and design, who want to be informed an modern design methods and tools for multi-phase flows.

Lecture topics:

  • Mathematical Models for Multiphase Flows
  • Eulerian Multiphase Flow: Phase Interaction Models
  • Lagrangian Two-Phase Flow Models
  • Interfacial Heat & Mass Transfer Models
  • Measurement Techniques and Experimental Investigations for Bubbly Flows
  • Practical Calculations of Bubbly Flows with CFX-5
